It took a lot longer to count the votes than anyone expected, but finally the results came in at 2:24: Wai Sin was the candidate dropped from the four, losing to Marty Zlotnik by only eight votes. The results: Melissa DeGenova, 214; Naresh Shukla, 189; Marty Zlotnik, 161; Wai Sin, 153.
I’m sure Wai will try again, since she seemed so gung-ho about the process. (Plus there seems to be some kind of massive group hug going on around her, as everyone consoles her/congratulates her on her big effort.) Not too much of surprise that Melissa and Naresh won, since there was a heavy Indo-Canadian presence and the DeGenovas clearly had been working the lists.
No count on the total voters, but it was more than 214, since people were allowed to vote for only one candidate at a time.
